The National White Privilege: Does It Exist?

The National White Privilege: Does It Exist?

In the wake of the U.S. grand jury decisions not to indict white police officers for killing black men Michael Brown and Eric Garner, protesters have taken to the streets. These events have also brought to the fore questions about the difference between how whites and minorities are treated. The National assembles a panel of political commentators who try to parse some difficult questions. Is white privilege a form of racism? What is the significance of the #crimingwhilewhite social media phenomenon? Is acknowledging the problem enough? Panelists include: Pam Palmater, Desmond Cole, Jonathan Kay and Tasha Kheiriddin.
